. it is unheard of in great britain or canada for any party to ever think about changing the law to keep its competition off the bell. and the britain anyone can get on about -- to keep them off the ballot in this country. in canada but it only takes 100 signatures. it does not occur to people in most countries that is legitimate for two parties to get together and keep competition off the ballot. host: for those who tried to keep the parties off the ballots, what is the main reasoning? guest: it depends on whether they are talking honestly or not. if you want an example of an honest comment, i was at a georgia state legislative hearing once and a legislator on the elections committee said, i don't want no damn libertarian running against me. i appreciated that. when the law came before judges, the judges will not say something like that. they constantly tell us we are in danger of overcrowded ballots that will cause the uer confusion. the truth is, we suffer from under-crowded ballots. i have been tracking state legislative candidacies for 20 years. every election year between 30% and 35% o
and e.u. on exchange of information. we work very closely with canada and mexico, our two neighbors. and so there is a huge amount of interaction at the international level but all designed to minimize the risk that a terrorist could either enter the united states or be plotting somewhere else to injure u.s. interests. >> senator mueller. >> senator, we've realized for a number of years, certainly before my time, that our success is in large part dependent on working with our counterparts overseas. we have over 60 legal offices in embassies around the world which we use as liaisons to our counterparts. we have since the 1970's a national academy in which we've brought in state and local law enforcement for a 10-week period for training. we have for many years included our foreign counterparts, whether it be from iraq or pakistan or afghanistan as part of those classes in an effort to educate persons as to what the f.b.i. does but also how the f.b.i. does it and what we do not do. in those relatively small ways but i think important ways we have developed persons that provide the rel
states, but not exclusive of other population. we imagined it would look a bit like canada and the united states, france and germany, where people would be able to cross the border. the israelis could be able to shop in palestinian areas, palestinians coming over to the israeli side -- and it has been repeated recently -- palestinians are not opposed to jews living in a palestinian state. we recognize the jewish people have religious and historic ties that will be the palestinian state. there is no objection to the jews living in the palestinian state. are they going to live in there as a palestinian citizen, as israeli citizens, under what framework? this vision of two states with multi-ethnic population is moving back and forth, this has taken a beating since i was in negotiations. over the course of all the violence that has taken recently, specifically in israel, over two exclusive populations. i think there needs to be a conclusion in a two state solution that allows both jews and palestinians to have access to both countries. the more interaction there will be, the more peace will b
indian airlines flight was hijacked in canada are -- kandahar. if pakistan is the key to afghanistan come into holds the key to pakistan, but the bush administration i think was already predisposed to building up india as a kind of way to china and quickly realized also that india was going to be a very important player in the war on terror. said the bush administration launched this massive diplomatic exercise that culminated in the u.s. indian nuclear deal. if you look at the relationship from about 2005, it improves dramatically. in fact, the rhetoric about cross border infiltrations reduces a lot of positive things that happened until of course the 2008 mumbai attacks and that impetus is lost. whether the u.s. in india nuclear deal brought in essence to u.s. policy with respect to afghanistan, pakistan remains -- it is somewhat speculative. it is something i think has been on the minds of a lot of people thinking about weapon sales. can weapons salsa they provide the united states with some latitude when it comes to u.s. policy toward afghanistan and pakistan. this is particularly imp
in 1996. in fact the european union and others, including canada, australia, norway, japan and south korea have now imposed their own sanctions. virtually every western energy company has now agreed to cease sales of refined petroleum to iran and refrain from investments in iran's energy sector. following the passage, most banks in the united arab emirates, an portrayeding partner, stopped money transfers to iran. press reports have indicated sanctions have cut in half exports with dubai. south korean sanctions have suspended the iran bank in seoul. the bank is a known facilitator of iran's proliferation activities and south korea is iran's fourth largest trading parter. the impact is significant. based on our discussion with the korean government. the banks's operations have been shut down for good. japan have recently announced sanctions that target iranian entities and individuals of proliferation concern, including iranian banks, the islamic revolutionary guard corps and the iranian shipping lines. these sanctions, along with the prohibition on the transfer of proliferation-sensitive d
of their american parent for their entire childhood. canada, the united kingdom, have all asked japan on returning their abducted children. children japan's inaction on the issue is a thorn in the side of their relations with the entire international community. japan's current inaction violates their duties under the international covet on civil and political rights, article 23, to completely and unjustly ignore the equal rights of one parent. h.res. 1326 calls on japan to immediately and urgently establish a process for the resolution of abduction an wrongful retention of american children. japan must find the will to establish today a process that will justify and equitablely end the cruel separation currently endured by parent and children alike. h.res. 1326 also calls on japan to join the hague convention on the civil aspects of international child abduction. this convention sets out the international norms for resolution of abduction and wrongful retention cases and will create a framework to quickly resolve future cases and act as a deterrent to parents who now feel that they can abduct thei
